Brook House faces onto Mitcham cricket ground. It is being converted into 46 flats.
Under new Government laws this conversion doesn’t require a planning application.
It is already a massive development but the owners want more and have applied to build 9 additional flats in the roof. This requires the building to be changed and so a planning application has been submitted.
It is good news that the former office building is to be used again. It has only come out of mothballs a few times in the last few years, including playing a starring role as the headquarters of Radio Norwich in the hit film Alpha Papa.
We think the proposed roof conversion is a step too far, however. It will make the whole building top heavy and damage the Conservation Area.
The application is also riddled with errors including references to fictional roads and non-existent developments.
